    Hi All,

    Trying to find comments on R1S vs. Model X on the interwebs but it's slim pickins. Here's how I see the pros of each:

    Model X
    • More mature product
    • More self driving capability
    • 250 charging
    • Better charging network
    • Longer range
    • Cheaper + qualification for federal tax credit
    • More cargo
    • No falcon doors (a positive)
    • Support for non-Tesla EV brand
    • Better towing capacity
    My main use case is road trips with the kids. Peninsula to Tahoe mostly, but other road trips within CA. Will the R1S be 250 capable? Does the hardware preclude it from 250 charging or will that come with a software update?

    What do folks think?

    Why doesnt pre orders offer Max battery? SUV needs more mileage.

    I feel like the Model X has too many issues, like pre-mature front axle wear, for example. I do like the falcon-wing doors, though.
    The R1S will be a look more off-road capable and I think I prefer its interior.
